Hi,

 

Sometimes when I visit a forum I see a username italic what does this mean exactly? Are those members not activated? It doesn't happen on the front page.

Pretty sure that the italic name means that this person is currently replying to a thread (therefore, typing a post).

Yes. If you hover over their name, you can see what topic they are currently replying to.
